The Isle of Arran Distillery is based in Lochranza, to the north of the island, home to a wide range of award winning whiskys, opened in 1995. In early 1998, they started producing the first bottle of the new Arran Single Malt.
The visitor centre was opened in 1997 by HRH Queen Elizabeth II and is open all year round for guided tours and tastings. You will learn about whisky making from professionally trained guides, enjoy the spectacular exhibition set around a thirty foot indoor waterfall and experience a little bit of history in the making.
You can also be shown how to 'pour your own' bottle direct from the cask, write your own label and thus enjoy your very own Arran Single Malt to take home.
If you fancy a dram or two; you are sure to find a selection of the whiskys at all three of our restaurants. In 2013, following the success of other malts, the 12 year old Cask Strength won a double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2013 in March. Look out for this in our bars!
